Why do Good People Make Bad Decisions?







Most engineers are good people – but even good people can find themselves on the wrong end of a decision, or failing to recognize they were at a turning point of an ethical dilemma until it was too late.  This webinar will explore ethical considerations arising out of recent case examples, with reference to the NSPE Code of Ethics for Engineers, and consider not only what ethical issues may have arisen but why good people, including good engineers, may have failed to recognize those issues and made bad decisions.  The webinar will conclude with some practices to help you guard against bad ethical decisions in your practice.
